'll be talking to in the next three hours. congresswoman rosa from connecticut. nobody can speak more poignantly or directly about what happened almost a week ago now in newtown, connecticut. we'll also be joined by senator tom udall from new mexico and with the report out which blasts the state department for not doing good enough job to protect our personnel in benghazi, joe cirincione, our foreign policy guru will be here as well. we'll get right into it. president obama's big announcement at the white house briefing room yesterday. but first... >> this is the "full court press." >> here are the other things you need to know before you head out the door this morning. you wouldn't think you would ever hear steven spielberg call chris christie one of his heroes but the liberal hollywood heavyweight praised him as one of his personal heroes saying christie was able to put politics aside for the greater good during hurricane sandy and that was really telling about him and what he did was right and he did it right at the end
of the killer in newtown, connecticut, on friday. and the other person who's really been out there in front with very specific suggestions and demands for action is michael bloomberg. scott pelley, host of cbs news last night interviewed michael bloomberg and he dared ask him the question so, you're mayor of new york, why do you care about this stuff? >> why is the murder rate around the country? i'm an american. what's your question? >> why is this mike bloomberg's crusade? >> i live in america! and i'm a human being. i don't know what your religion teaches you. mine teaches you to take care of each other. in america read the constitution. we're all equal and we're all americans. >> bill: bloomberg says basicically, get out of here asking me a question like that. he points out, you know, he has been very critical of president obama saying look, it is up to the president to lead on this with a specific proposal so that he will put forward and fight for. he promised to do that in tucson. >> the president spoke out on
. they changed this country. the people who have lost their kids at aurora colorado and newtown connecticut. yesterday we heard from sandy phillips here with the brady hill campaign on capitol hill lost other daughter in the theater shooting in aurora. >> congress, the senate and our president now have an opportunity to be a hero as well and stop the blood shed. >> bill: whether they call themselves mothers against assault weapons or mothers against gun violence or whatever, i think this is going to change the debate. good news yesterday on the gun front and, we are finally, exposing the nra for what it is. 866-55-press. let's talk about it. does this end the stranglehold that the nra has had on so many spineless politicians, democrats and republicans? you tell me. >> this is the"the full court press: the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv. [ music ] >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. ... and current will let me say anything.
. obviously we have been talking about the tragedy in connecticut, but you tweeted if we wait for gun tragedies to stop, before we can talk about smarter gun policies, we'll be waiting forever. >> yeah, there's a divide on the right and left about guns and it is as much cultural as it is political. i grew up in a gun family. my dad is a gun guy, and nra guy, and i have probably been to more gun shows than virtually every pundit who has appeared on cable news this week and i can tell you it's time to close the loophole, reinstitute the assault weapons ban. we're never going to get rid of every gun. you know, hal was talking on the show yesterday about the culture, and there is a fear -- i think if you were to tell gun enthusists that all you wanted to go is register every gun that people owned, make sure that they were licensed, and that's all that was going to happen, and they were confident that that's is all that is going to happen, they would go for it. but the fear they have is somebody is going to come and scoop up their guns. and where does that come from? th
confirmed but it would have been too long and too ugly a battle. derrick from ellington, connecticut, what do you think? >> listen. i am so disappointed in president obama. you know what is so disheart disheartening? she was one of the biggest supporters and barack obama has no fight in him. he has you don'tno spine. he should have fought the good fight. >> i agree with that. maybe he figures it's better to fight for some resolution and the tact cuts than for susan rice. >> i think it will gol in a cliff, for half a million dollars. i have no confidence in this guy. leon panet at that. >> yeah. listen, i would love to see her as secretary of defense, and i doubt we are going to see that. i think what's more likely is first of all, i think we will see john kerry as secretary of state. he would be great. he would be great. and i think what susan rice may become the national security advisor once tom donalin steps down. i certainly hope president obama has another great big plum great big fat job in mind for susan rice. did he do the right thing? our conver
funding for new jersey and new york particularly. i think connecticut maybe too. for the damage for hurricane sandy. he's doing that at the request of the governors there and republicans in congress are now saying do they really need that much money? was there really that much damage to hurricane sandy? haven't they been watching tv? >> they've been dodging the question about whether they should offset the cost of it. i think when -- i think boehner has so much on his plate right now. that he's going to let this through. he just doesn't want to say it. but you know, obviously this is another thing that conservatives are pushing for. so it's a tough spot. especially because i had forgotten about cantor and that damage when he said back then. he kind of retreated subsequently because he got flak for it. >> bill: here's what i would like to see. i would like to see whoever these members of congress are republicans in congress that are questioning the amount of storm damage in new jersey, i would like to see them s
